Beef Enchiladas

It is not easy to make beef enchiladas. I have tried for a while now to perfect a recipe.
After my last attempt to make them and my family was very polite and said they were good, but I know they weren't. I decided to try and  figure out what makes them good.
Last night I figured it out and oh my...they were awesome!

Beef Enchiladas
1 lb hamburger
1 can diced green chiles
1/2 onion, diced
1/4 cup olives, chopped
2 cups shredded cheese
1 can green enchilada sauce

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. In a pan brown the hamburger with onions and green chiles. Mix in the olives and one cup of cheese. Then mix in half the can of green enchilada sauce. Place the meat mixture into a tortilla, roll up and place in a baking dish. Repeat until all the meat mixture is gone. Cover the enchiladas with rest of the green sauce and sprinkle the remaining cheese on top. Bake for 20 minutes if you like them soft, closer to 30 minutes for crunchy. Enjoy!

So this just amazed me! You can make your own sweetened condensed your home...and more than likely you have everything in your pantry. With the prices in the store this will definitely help with your pocketbook!

Homemade Sweetened Condensed Milk

1 Cup Dry Powdered Milk
1/2 Cup Water

Put sugar & powdered milk in a blender. Put water & butter in a microwaveable dish & let it come to a boil in your microwave; about 45-60 seconds. You can also use your stovetop as well. Keep an eye on it. Add water/butter mixture to mixer & blend until combined. Scrape sides if you need to & blend again.*Makes approximately 1 1/2 cups.

So super easy! Now go make some goodies with your homemade sweetened condensed milk! :)
